How to Read Someone’s Text Messages Without Their Phone & Without Installing Software

hack text messages without access to phone

Do you need to see text messages on someone else’s phone? A child, an employee, or perhaps someone else?

Learning how to read someone’s text messages without their phone is actually much easier than it should be.

In this post I’ll reveal how spy apps allow you to monitor text messages (and more), often without installing software. I’ll also cover:

  • reading someone’s cell phone text messages without them knowing
  • will you need to install software on the phone?
  • reading Whatsapp, Facebook, and Instagram Messages

Of course if the person you’re monitoring knows that they’re being watched you might not get the information you need.

So we’re going to look at some solutions that don’t require installing software or even having physical access to the phone.

Hack Text Messages Without Access to the Phone

One of the challenges of hacking someone’s phone to read their text messages is that in many cases you don’t have physical access to the phone.

But there are ways of reading text messages from another phone without installing software

The first step is determining the type of phone they’re using. Most spyware is designed to work on both iOS and Android devices, but the solutions for each are different.

To hack text messages without access to the target phone you need a spy app like mSpy, uMobix, or FlexiSPY. All of these products allow you to use a person’s iCloud credentials see all the data that is stored on the phone and backed up to the cloud.

How to Hack an iPhone (iOS) Text Messages

If the person you’re looking read someone’s text messages and they use and iPhone then you’re in luck. This iPhone text message hack is VERY powerful.

Even though Apple has made iPhones incredibly secure, there is a way to hack into them without having to install software on the device itself.

If they’ve setup their phone to backup to their iCloud account, all the information you could ever want will be stored in it.

You simply need to know the login credentials to this account and a spy app will pull all this data into a dashboard for you to view at your convenience.

You’ll be able to see iMessages and all sorts of other information about the phone.

How to Hack Android Text Messages

Unfortunately the strategy laid out above ONLY works with iOS devices. Hacking text messages on Androids, for example, is much more difficult.

Androids don’t automatically backup to an iCloud account and therefore require that an app be installed directly on the phone.

If you need to monitor or track an Android phone you WILL need to install software on the device. Obviously to do this you will need physical access to the device, and a couple minutes of time.

How to Read Text Messages From Another Phone Without Them Knowing

If you want to find out what’s going on behind your back a spy app is the best methods of getting the information you need.

Once installed they can be hidden so the user never knows they’re texts are being read.

Our two favorite products are mSpy and FlexiSPY. You can read our mSpy review here.

How to Get Text Messages from Another Phone Sent to Mine

When you hack a phone using this type of software you will be able to see all sorts of information in real time.

This includes intercepting and reading text messages from another phone.

All their texts and other communication can be sent to your phone by logging into your control panel. Here you’ll see almost EVERYTHING they see.

This includes Facebook messages, Snapchats, pictures, call logs or phone records, and some will even allow you to track a cell phone location without installing software on target phone. Most of the best spy apps work on a variety of phones including both iPhones and Android devices.

Installing the software is typically the most challenging part of tracking and monitoring someone’s phone. Most people just don’t let their phone out of their site for that long. And just about every phone on the market has a password.

A spy app is designed to thwart these security features, but you will still typically need access to the phone to install the app.

Intercept Text Messages Without Installing Software

Intercepting text messages without installing software on a phone usually requires accessing information stored in the cloud.

In fact, accessing this information is possible even without physical access to the target device. The amount of data you can look at is astounding.

This software accesses the users iCloud account directly and requires their login credentials. This allows you to pull data from their account without installing the software on the device first.

Cell phone monitoring software allows you to spy on incoming and outgoing text messages and social media chat apps from another mobile phone, often in real time. Through a web based control panel you’ll be able to monitor pretty much all communication to and from the target device. You can see who sent the messages, and at what time. This also includes Apple’s iMessage.

More importantly it will archive messages that have been deleted from the target phone. This gives you the assurance that you’ll see EVERYTHING.

OK. To hack someone’s phone you’ll typically need to get software installed on the phone. Many people, especially those with something to hide, jealously guard their phones 24/7. Some spy apps requiring installing software on the target phone, but some can be set up on the phone remotely. HOWEVER there are a few things you WILL need.

First and foremost if your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, child, or whoever has an iPhone or iOS device you will need their iCloud credentials. Typically this is the email address and password they use for iTunes. Without this you will need physical access to the target phone.

Secondly, they must have automatic backups enabled. This is what tells the iPhone to sync all of it’s data with the iCloud. Even if you have their credentials, if this setting isn’t turned on, you’ll never be able to get updated information.

There a couple of spy apps out there that allow you to hack someone’s phone remotely without software, but by far our favorite is mSpy. mSpy offers both a hacking app that utilizes the iCloud backup solution and a package that IS installed on the target phone.
